Welcome to Centers and Squares

As a Cambridge real estate agent, the city squares of Cambridge, Somerville and Medford and the town centers of Arlington, Watertown and Belmont, Massachusetts are my home turf. And as a lifelong New Englander who’s lived within twenty miles of Boston most of my life, I can introduce you to other nearby towns as we search for your new home. If you’re planning to sell your home in Cambridge, MA or nearby you’ll find plenty of info about the home selling process here too. Questions? Send me an email or call me at 617-504-1737.

Camps, Meetups and More Around Boston

WordCamp Boston 2011

WordCamp Boston 2011

I’ve been spending a lot of time at camp lately.

No – not summer camp, or Girl Scout camp, or pitch-a-tent-in-the-woods camping.  As appealing as all of that sounds, these camps have all been held indoors.

I’m not really sure why techies, bloggers and online enthusiasts of all stripes coined the term “camp” to describe these seminars, get-togethers, and conferences (or “unconferences” as these are often called) –  but “camp” it is.  Lately I’ve been to RainCamp, REBarCamp, and just this weekend to WordCamp at BU where more than 500 WordPress bloggers and developers gathered for two days of sessions.

Boston is a hotbed of these annual get togethers.  Don’t want to wait that long for your fix?  There’s also a variety of groups that meet regularly to learn and share about all sorts of web-related topics and endeavors.

When there’s a cost for a program it’s typically very low relative to the value of the get-together. 

Here are some of the meetings and groups in and around Boston – some I’ve been to, some I haven’t.  Be sure to check out Meetup.com for plenty of other groups that may more closely match your interests – from the creative to the super-tech.
